### A SENATE RESOLUTION

TO EXPRESS THE PROFOUND SORROW OF THE MEMBERS OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA SENATE UPON THE DEATH OF ROGER ELMER JERMYN OF YORK COUNTY, AND TO EXTEND THE DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO HIS FAMILY AND MANY FRIENDS.

Whereas, the members of the South Carolina Senate were deeply saddened to learn of the death of Roger Elmer Jermyn of York County on January 1, 2011, at the venerable age of seventy-three; and

Whereas, a resident of Rock Hill, Mr. Jermyn was born a son of the late Robert Elmer Jermyn and the late Jessie Irving Jermyn in Elkton, Maryland; and

Whereas, this veteran of the Army National Guard had retired from Allied Signal Corporation, now Honeywell Corporation, with thirty-three years of service and also did chair caning for his son at A Lasting Touch; and

Whereas, giving back to the community was Roger Jermyn's mission in life, and he worked tirelessly to help those less fortunate, regardless of age, race, or creed. He strove to ensure that Rock Hill residents had knowledge of, and access to, mobility services, home- and community-based services, and consumer protections; and

Whereas, as a part of his service, Roger Jermyn was former Rock Hill chapter president of the AARP and was serving as treasurer. Under his leadership, the local AARP chapter performed an average six hundred fifty hours of community service per month. In 2006, he was the recipient of the prestigious AARP Andrus Award for his extensive community service. He was also a member of the Episcopal Church of Our Savior; and

Whereas, as all those who had the privilege of knowing and working with him will attest, Roger Jermyn was selfless in his service, an inspiring, courageous, and gracious soul who lived to help others; and

Whereas, Mr. Jermyn leaves to cherish his memory his beloved wife, Frances Hamilton Jermyn; his son, Keith Jermyn; his daughters, Lynne Dickert and Gayle Senn; three grandchildren; and a host of other relatives and friends. He will be missed. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate:

That the members of the South Carolina Senate, by this resolution, express their profound sorrow upon the death of Roger Elmer Jermyn of York County and extend the deepest sympathy to his family and many friends.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Mrs. Frances Hamilton Jermyn for the family.
